Regional socioeconomic planning requires assessing the local resource potential from the economic standpoint. The assessment must cover the tourism opportunities the region has, as domestic and inbound tourism is a national priority. This makes relevant any effort to improve the methodology for assessing the opportunities for tourism; the new methodology must provide not only quantitative, but also qualitative assessment for effective managerial decision-making in tourism. Despite numerous papers having been published on the topic over the last decade, objective assessment of tourism opportunities for strategic decision-making in socioeconomic development is a problem yet to be solved. The goal hereof is to create a method for comprehensive assessment of local tourism opportunities so as to choose the priorities of regional socioeconomic development. The paper overviews the existing approaches to the problem and presents the author’s method as well as how it applies to Novosibirsk Oblast. The research builds upon Russian and international studies on evaluating single tourism opportunities as well as on comprehensive assessments. It will of use for regional and municipal governments in Russian regions, for tourism development agencies, as well as for anyone interested in regional tourism.
